Abstract

Energy-intensive industries can adapt to help balance the power grid. By using a real-world case study of a zinc galvanizing process in Denmark, we show how a modest investment in power control of the furnace enables the provision of various ancillary services. We consider two types of services, namely frequency containment reserve (FCR) and manual frequency restoration reserve (mFRR), and numerically conclude that the monetary value of both services is significant, such that the pay-back time of investment is potentially within a year. The FCR service provision is more preferable as its impact on the temperature of the zinc is negligible.
